Liverpool Legend Dreams Of Becoming Reds' Boss

Former Liverpool star Sami Hyypia has revealed that it is ambition to one day become the manager of his old club, according to talkSPORT.

The ex-centre half, now in charge at Bayer Leverkusen, enjoyed 10 years at Anfield, where he became captain and won two FA Cups, two League Cups, the Champions League and the UEFA Cup.

Hyypia moved to Germany in 2009, where he became head coach at Leverkusen last year.

The former Finland international has largely impressed so far in his short career in the dugout, and has now revealed that he one day plans to return to Liverpool as manager.

""I have two special places in my heart. I was born in Finland. And there the national team coach is the biggest job. Liverpool has a different place in my heart," Hyypia said.

"I will not say that it is a goal, but after the ten years that I played there, it would be a dream someday to be Liverpool manager. But I live in the here and the now. And that is Bayer Leverkusen, and it is great fun."

Hyypia's Leverkusen have made a remarkable start to the current Bundesliga season, winning six games and only losing one, leaving them in third place and only one point behind Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

His former club is also enjoying a successful campaign so far, with Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool sitting second in the Premier League table following four wins, one loss and a draw.
